UKHospitality has urged the sector to make its nominations for the annual ops managers awards before the deadline of 20 June.

The UKH Operations Managers Awards identifies and celebrates outstanding individuals running multi-site businesses within both the managed and the leased/franchised sectors of hospitality.

Nick Bish, founder of the Operations Managers Awards, said: “The challenging entry papers take a day or two to complete and should be submitted by mid-June at the latest, so it’s worth nominating now so that individuals have time to show what they know and what they can do.

“Companies should look closely at their teams, spot their own champions and those who will benefit from being involved.”

The 20 Finalists will be revealed in late June and then enjoy a rigorous three-day Masterclass where the Finalists are immersed in leadership, strategy and personal development that leverages and polishes their own skill sets. They will then each spend a day in trade with one of the Mentor Judges.

The finals judging day on 15 October involves searching interviews from panels of leading industry professionals – testing the finalists’ knowledge, performance and potential. The winners are then revealed at a gala ceremony that same evening at London’s Pullman Hotel.

Nominations can be made online at, with downloadable entry papers to be submitted any time before 20 June.
